All Glammed Up with Kat . . .

Now I really have to give my praises to this wonderful waterproof mascara that live up to its promises! I now brand thee, Maybelline Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black, as my everyday Gym Mascara.

Yes! I’ve been using this product whenever I go to the gym. And it doesn’t smear, smudge, run at all (despite the storm of sweat that runs down my face. Of all the make ups that I can’t live without, a mascara earns a spot on my the list. I can go out without a blushers, foundations, powders, and lipsticks as long as I have my trusty mascara on. Because for me, if the eyes are the windows to the soul, then ones eyelashes are the perfectly complimenting shutters for those windows to show ones personality living in ones exterior. Okay whatever…haha

Great Lash Waterproof Mascara in Very Black

So… I got this in a pack. 2 bottles in one packaging. I got mine for Php350.00 from a Facebook seller (who got her items form the US – so these are authentic.) It comes in a pretty pink and black bottle. Its applicator wand just have small bristles which requires a bit more effort in application.

I’ve never been a fan of Maybelline but after trying two of their mascaras, this, the Great Lash Waterproof Very Black and Vollum’ Express Waterproof in Brown, the brand got my respects. (They are really waterproof!) So basically, I only use their mascaras.

The only thing I don’t like about their waterproofs is that its REALLY hard to remove. So I have to be extra careful when removing it so I won’t lose any lashes by plucking them accidentally. Ouch.

 I’d give this product a rating of 3.5/5 for waterproof mascara lovers.

This one’s my current favorite eyebrow groomer 🙂

I actually don’t use it for my lashes since I’m more comfortable with black mascaras. I chose to use brown shades for my eyebrows since mine are thick and too black already. So to soften my look, I use products with the brown shade.

 

One bottle is priced at Php 300-400. (forgotttt) Plus, it doesn’t dry up in the bottle. You can actually use the  entire product for a long time until the bottle literally gets empty. Cheap? Yep yep!

One thing I like about Maybelline’s Volum’ Express Mascara in Brown, is that it is actually water-proof, sweat-proof, smudge-proof, salt-water-proof (yes, I’ve tried it on the beach) and all the “proof” words that can describe its strong enduring-staying power. (Forgive my redundancies, but this really is an industrial strength mascara and I cannot think of any words to describe its awesomeness!) And to think that I use it on my thick eyebrows. It sure does the job done! It’s like a spray-net for the brows hehe.

Slightly Curved Brush

The color is the typical brown color. For some skin tones, the color brown may look fake on them. But since my brows are all black, it doesn’t make much difference. It just grooms.

I’ve tried using it for my lashes, though, but I didn’t really like the result. Nothing seems to change (improve) when I use it on my lashes. Or maybe my standards for lashes are too much I guess… Anyway, for my lashes, NOT! But for my brows, A TOTAL YES. 🙂

To tell you the truth, I never liked the brand Maybelline, until I found this extra-strong mascara hehehe.
